What is my likelihood for getting chosen for a show?

By Emily Gibbs on October 5, 2019

More often than not, you will get confirmed for any show you sign up for. But for very popular shows, you may find yourself on the waitlist instead. We encourage you to sign up for any show that interests you, but be prepared to get started with some weekday shows or shows by smaller bands.

What is the time commitment?

By Emily Gibbs on

There is no requirement for how many shows you must volunteer at. You can sign up for whatever shows you’re available for. But when you do volunteer at a concert, you often need to arrive about one hour before the doors open to the show, which can be two or more hours before the actual showtime….

What does a HeadCount volunteer do?

By Emily Gibbs on

The main responsibility of a HeadCount volunteer is to approach people and ask “Are you registered to vote at your current address?” and then assist them as they complete a voter registration form.
